Annabelle and Joel's New Training Schedule

Last Saturday, we met with Dalilah.  Annabelle and Joel will begin skating and training an average of three sessions a day and also begin doing off-ice training.

Here's their schedule:

Monday: 8--8:45, 9:45-10:30, 3:00--3:45 on ice

Tuesday: 8--8:45, 9:25-10:05 on ice, 10:40 to 11 (off ice lifts), 3:00--3:45 on ice, followed by 4:00 PM off ice training

Wednesday: 8--8:45, 9:45 to 10:30 on ice, 10;40 to 11 (off ice lfits), 2:15 --3, 3--3:45 on ice

Thursday: 7:15 --8 on ice, 4:00 off ice training
(Joel will also practice on his own 8--8:20 on ice, 9:25--9:45 off ice jumps, 9:45--10:30 on ice)

Friday:: 6:30--7:15 am, 7:15 --8 am on ice

Saturday: 7:15 -- 8 am, 8--8:45 am on ice, plus one other freestyle session

The jump to novice pairs is a big jump.  This is almost twice as much training as they did for intermediate pairs.  The kids, especially Joel, are so, so motivated to get better and improve!

I've already seen so much improvement in just a couple of days!  They are almost doing a back outside death spiral and their throws are faster and their star lift is coming close to being on the ice and the pop up is "popping!"
